The deals have begun rolling in for Unisys (NYSE: UIS) this week. The IT firm announced it has won a position on the FBI’s lucrative IT overhaul contract.
The company joins 45 other firms who have also won the right to bid for work under the $30 billion ID/IQ contract, which carries an eight-year term.
Venkatapathi “PV” Puvvada, vice president and managing partner for Unisys Federal Systems civilian agencies division, said the contract is an “opportunity” for the company.
“This contract represents an opportunity for Unisys to work with the FBI to provide our experience and expertise in support of a broader array of the agency’s mission,” he explained. “We look forward to expanding our work with the FBI and DOJ to help them achieve their vital objectives to protect the United States.”
Meanwhile, Unisys’ work on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data centers was singled out for recognition, being recently certified as one of the first federal government data centers to comply with a best-practices standard for delivering managed services that meet business and customer requirements.
The CDC Mid-Tier Data Center in Atlanta, managed by Unisys, was certified as compliant with the ISO/IEC 20000 standard – one of only 33 organizations in the United States to reach that classification.
Unisys Federal Systems President Ted Davies said the recognition is a “proud” moment for the company.
“We congratulate CDC on obtaining this certification, a distinction achieved by only 33 organizations in the United States,” he said. “We are proud of the role played by Unisys in assisting the CDC in earning this certification and will continue to work with the agency to provide superior service to CDC data center clients.”
